For many people, this may be your first visit to a chiropractor. So please allow us to give you an outline of what to expect.
We ask that you dress comfortably for the consultation; this will make sure we can be as thorough as we can in our examination. If you have any current or prior exams such as CTs, MRIs, X-rays or other relevant test results, please bring them along to assist the Chiropractor in learning as much as they can regarding your condition.
Chiropractic Consultation and Examinations
You will meet with either Wendy or Greg to talk. Following your first visit, Wendy or Greg will review providers throughout the Inverell and the surrounding towns. As a way of learning what may have contributed to your problem, we may ask questions regarding previous injuries, falls, postural habits, sports, repetitive stressors, etc.
Our goal is to help you find out the cause of the problem, if it’s something we feel we can help with we’ll continue with our examination, if its outside our expertise, we will let you know and find someone who can. Following our consultation, we will then begin our four (4) exams.
We are extensive in our initial exam to make sure we help you find the underlying cause of the problem which should take a total of 45 minutes.
- Physical Examination
- Structural Chiropractic Examination
- Thermal reading Nervoscope analysis
Digital X-Ray Analysis (if necessary).
After your Exam
Following your first visit, Greg will review your consultation and the four examinations to review the source of your health problems. We understand that no two conditions are the same. As such, the chiropractor will review a specific program of correction that is customised to you.
Our staff will then give you a folder that includes your results, as well as some information about our office.
We have built strong relationships with health care providers throughout the Moree and the surrounding towns. If we find during the examination that this is not a chiropractic case, know you will be immediately referred to a health practitioner we feel best suits your condition.
Rachel will provide a comprehensive assessment and treatment program that takes into account your current capacity, lifestyle, any sporting activities and how you want to live your life from now onwards.
What to Expect
At the initial treatment session, Rachel will take a detailed account of the problem, followed by a physical examination in order to make a clinical diagnosis.
Each physiotherapy treatment and injury recovery plan is specifically tailored to your individual needs – we explain to you the underlying cause of your condition so that you can take control of your own recovery program.
